|The Boredom Buster Jar!|
We printed out the download, my son cut the pieces and folded them and now our jar is ready to go! The next time they say they are bored – they will choose an idea from the jar and that is what they will do for the next 30 minutes!
Busy hands and busy minds keep children out of trouble!
Here’s what else we’ve been up to – and some ideas if you are looking for something to do. Take note: there are NO crafts…I’m terrible at crafts. I feel badly about this – just being honest. If you are a crafty mom – I think my daughter would like to move in with you lol!
Our very fancy backyard pool lol! I told my husband when I lay on that raft and close my eyes – I can’t even tell that I’m not in some huge fancy in ground pool! I love this! And it’s fun to spin the kids on too!
Making bouquets from the flowers around our house!
A trip in a small airplane.
School work at Starbucks!
The zoo! I love looking at God’s creation – so do the children!
Our Doodle books! These are SO much fun!
Nerf Gun Wars
Play dates - these are the sweet mamas! You might recognize Janelle from Comfy In The Kitchen on the far right!
Friends lined up to go down the slip-n-slide!
Summer Vacation Bible School (this is a picture from last year – we’ll be headed here in July!)
The Library and reading outside! This is my favorite!
Some have asked if we are doing any summer school. We are taking the month of June off and then in July we’ll be focusing on the basics: Reading, Writing, and Arithmetic. We are reading library books and the Bible. We are writing in our journals and writing out verses. And we’ll be doing some flash cards for math.
Have a GREAT summer with your kids! Remember how quickly it goes – savor the moments and enjoy your children! And if you need some encouragement on the topic of Motherhood, we are currently in the midst of a series over on GoodMorningGirls.org where 3 times a week we have posts up to encourage moms in their Ministry of Motherhood.
Please feel free to share in the comment section some of your boredom busters!
